Today I went to Teotihuacan, about an hours journey from the city. Teotihuacan, was Mexico’s biggest ancient city, and is known for its two pyramids, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun, which is the third largest pyramid in the world, built using three million tons of stone, without the use of tools, pack animals or the wheel. Construction of Teotihuacan started around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC.
Before I got to the pyramids there was a couple of structures where the original painting was still intact.
First I came to the Pyramid of the Moon, then walked down the centre of the site to get to the Pyramid of the Sun, which I climbed up, to the top. Great views and someone very kindly took a photo of me at the top.
There is also a museum at the site too which had some interesting exhibits. Teotihuacan was the largest Pre-Columbian city in the Americas, reaching a total population of 150,000 at its height. The name also refers to the civilization this city dominated, which at its greatest extent included most of Mesoamerica.
This evening I visited Plaza Garibaldi which is famous for Mariachi music, there were lots of musicians dressed in their finery, and some were playing music, however it’s a bit seedy on route to the plaza so I left before it got dark.
